In my opinion The Aviator is a masterpiece of a film, I have always been a fan of Martin Scorsese and I honestly think this is his best film to date. The film tells the story of Howard Hughes film director of films such as Devils Angels and Scarface and airplane pilot with a big passion for airplanes and with that passion he creates one of the biggest airplanes in the world, however Hughes struggles a lot with OCD and it gets worse as the film goes on. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Howard Hughes and believe it or not DiCaprio gives his best performance ever here as Howard Hughes in fact I thought it was so good that he should have won the Academy Award for best actor in a leading role for this film. The Aviator has a number of shockingly great performances that are just as great as DiCaprio's such as Alec Baldwin, Adam Scott, Jude Law, John C. Reilly, Cate Blanchet, and Kate Beckinsale. Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will forever be one of Hollywoods best duo (next to Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg), and they both do an absolutely magnificent job with The Aviator, I honestly feel that this is the best biographic film since A Beautiful Mind (2001). If you are a fan of both DiCaprio and Scorsese or just want a fast moving biography that still manages to be well acted than I recommend you give The Aviator a try, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
